The cover of Boy Trouble (2005) from a promo postcard; cover illustration by me. The postcard was designed by Craig Bostick, who did the color as well. The illos at the bottom (L to R) are from stories by David Kelly (my co-editor and publisher), Michael Fahy, Tim Fish, and Craig Bostick. 
I loved this Boy Trouble very much! It still holds up really well, I think.

"SE 21st Av," my new comic that asks the question, “Just what is the deal with those idle food trucks?”, among other things.

This two-part strip was intended to be my guest spot in a webcomic that a noted writer & cartoonist team had in the works last year. Unfortunately, the whole thing fell through and the series never launched. The story involved two brothers, one straight and one gay, in modern day Barcelona. This strip (written and assigned to me to illustrate), depicted a recurring dream the gay brother had. Although it’s presented now out of context of the larger story, I thought I’d post it anyway, as I like the way some of my drawings turned out. It’s regrettable that the series didn’t happen because the stuff they had for it was really good.
